His Last Hurrah aka “Misty” – SOLD to Bits & Bytes Farm!
Great Mover, Athletic, Show & Event Prospect
His Last Hurrah aka “Misty” is a 2013, 15.3+ hand Thoroughbred filly who has just three race starts and will grow to be over 16 hands. Her groom and gallop boy love her and say she has great ground manners and is a dream to ride on the track. Her gallop boy says you can gallop her with one hand. She does not pull whatsoever. “Misty” is vice free and up-to-date on everything. She is a splendid mover with tons of potential to go any direction you would like her to go. The reason she stopped racing is that she had a 4% tear in a suspensory. She has had four months off since it is so slight and she is currently being ridden at Bits & Bytes Farm for her rehab.
The vet says she will be able to have a full career. Your pre-purchase vet will have access to the vet who did the scan. She was given a few months of time off and she should go on to have a full career as a sport/show horse. The vet does not feel she will have any limitations. Her race trainer needed the stall, so we brought her to Bits & Bytes Farm. All her medical records will be shared with potential buyers. Call if you want to learn more about what she is doing with her training at Bits & Bytes Farm in the Atlanta, GA area. She is available for people to come see and ride now.
UPDATE September 2017: Everyone at Bits & Bytes Farm is totally in love with “Misty” so we are keeping her…at least for now. She is showing great potential for dressage and eventing but she is just four and we want to play with her this year and give her time to grow. She is at Bits & Bytes Farm and you can schedule an appointment to come and meet her. We might even let you ride her…Just warning you that it will have to be a really special match for us to let go of this spectacular horse in a hurry.
I look forward to speaking with you. Please call 770-704-704-6595 between 9am and 9pm. East Coast Time – Elizabeth Wood
Frequently Asked Questions About Buying Our Thoroughbreds – Please READ BEFORE CALLING
What is the price of this horse?
Prices are not published because the price can go up or down depending on how the horse is racing. Most horses average $3500 but can be as low as $1000 or up to $5000. We will share the prices when you call. If the horse you call about is not in your budget, we may be able to recommend another horse that is.
What is the Jockey Club name of this horse?
Jockey Club names are not usually listed on the site as the sellers do not want calls from people who have not been screened by us for having the skills to help these horses into new careers. Most horses come with their Jockey Club papers and we will be happy to provide links to their race records and pedigrees when you make the decision to move forward with a purchase. Horses’ whose names are in quotes are not the actual name of the horse. That is the nickname we have listed the horse by.
Where is this horse located?
When we say this is a Prospect Horse, that means the horse is not at our farm in the Atlanta area. Prospect horses are still at the track or owner or trainer’s farm. We can tell you where the horse is when you call. Thoroughbreds move from track to track and to the farm and back. We cannot keep this web site current with so many horses listed and all moving around. That is why we don’t post the location. We are happy to share where the horse is when you call. We may have to make a phone call to find out where the horse is ourselves, but we are happy to share the info with you…if you call.

We are not going to talk you into buying a horse! More likely we will ask you to tell us about yourself and your goals. Then, we will help you find the right match or tell you to wait for other horses because none of the current horses are a match.
Prices change based on what price the owner has set. We add a small markup for our services. Prices can go up or down based on how the horse is racing or how quickly the owner wants the horse sold. Most Prospect horses are priced under $5000 with the average being around $3500. Big sound geldings, grey horses and tall horses usually cost more — but not always. Small mares are your best bet if you are price sensitive.

Lynn’s Vision aka Bubba at his last race – July 5, 2008. He was purchased by Melanie Eberhardt right after this race and brought back to Bits & Bytes Farm the next day. Melanie was riding him just one day later and he was a complete gentleman.
